As autumn settles itself in comfortably, "Let's Be Still" provides that last bit of summer warmth. Let the Head and the Heart ease the transition.
A night like Tuesday night at the Pageant can be described in so many ways, but none of them carry a negative connotation.
Since its self-titled release in 2009, Seattle's the Head and the Heart has earned the adoration of fans and critics alike for crafting vulnerable, indie-folk sing-alongs.
It's been three years since Seattle's the Head and the Heart won over both with its self-titled debut. The folk-pop band is back with "Let's Be Still" this fall; lead single "Shake" has a bold, danceable but still deeply heartfelt sound.
Even with the transplant status of several band members and a few stints living abroad, the Head and the Heart have put down deep Seattle roots.
There's something in the music of Seattle's the Head and the Heart that brings on a wash of nostalgia and emotion: sepia-toned memories of rivers and fields, lilting three-part harmonies and saloon piano chords.
